Product Description


Like the Stanley #289 that inspired it, it is configured with a blade skewed at a 30° angle to reduce cut resistance, aid in shaving clearance, and help pull the fence tight against the workpiece. Because the blade sits flush with the side of the plane body, corner cuts are clean and accurate.

Adjustable in two axes (vertical and horizontal) for depth and projection, the scoring spur sits ahead of the blade and is used to reduce tear-out on cross-grain work. The spur can be recessed for work with the grain.

The 7-3/8" long fence is through-drilled to accept a wooden extension. Double guide rods and a special collet locking system prevent the fence from racking, and the large brass knobs allow fast and easy adjustments without tools. The fence can be positioned to allow a maximum rabbet width of 1½".

The adjustable shoe controls the depth of cut to a maximum 3/4" deep (or you can remove the shoe for no depth limitation), and has relieved edges to avoid marking your work.

Supplied with a lapped PM-V11 blade that is 1/8" thick and just over 1-5/8" wide. The depth-adjustment mechanism is fast and accurate, with an independent traveller to prevent lateral shifting of the blade. Set screws along the side allow repeatable blade positioning.

The large wooden handles are solid and comfortable to hold. The 9¾" long ductile cast iron body is machined with a 45° blade bed and weighs 3½ lb.

The plane is available in left and right-hand versions. You may need only the version that suits your dominant hand, though neither model is exclusively for left- or right-handed users. They are in fact complementary since having both lets you accommodate any grain direction.
 

Customer Reviews

By Peter Madeley on 22nd November 2022
"Thank you for your prompt service and delivery. The plane is of the usual high quality and handsome appearance which is characteristic of Veritas tools. Like all rabbet planes it needs to be honed and adjusted carefully, after which it smoothly cuts a sharp, clean rabbet, even in hardwood. The large rear handle and front knob make the plane comfortable to use. I bought this plane to replace a No 778 rabbet plane which I have always found uncomfortable to use and I am liable to cut my left hand on the protruding corner of the blade, because it the design lacks a front handle. I am pleased to add the Veritas plane to my toolkit. "
